Here's a few photos of some bits and pieces in Manchester.
Piccadilly Gardens features some interesting statues, including one of the Duke of Wellington.
...and one of Queen Victoria.
Sir Robert Peel. This statue was the first ever outdoor statue to be raised in Manchester by public subscription.
The Manchester Wheel became the third such structure I've been on inside a year (see here for earlier turns: http://marshtowers.blogspot.com/2009/12/middlesbrough-wheel.html).
